    A progressive public relations firm founded by environmentalist and CNN political contributor Van Jones is representing “a number” of Republican electors who plan on voting against President-elect Donald Trump.

Electors of conscience can still do the right thing for the good of the country,” Suprun wrote. “Presidential electors...

Kelly is said to have not made up her mind about staying with Fox News beyond the end of her contract in July, even with an offer of more than $20 million a year to stay, which would put her in the same income bracket as NBC’s “Today” co-anchor Matt Lauer. So far no other networks have offered to top Fox’s figure, according to network news executives and agents familiar with...

Zeleny also highlighted that the president-elect had yet to provide any "hard evidence" to back up his "staggering claims of fraud." In response, Trump fired off a series of...

    But in the age of Trump, reporters have a new purpose, a more pressing social contract with the public to cover the president fairly but fearlessly. They need to zero in even as they broaden their horizons. The news media should cover Trump motivated by four pillars of political journalism: be fair, be relentless, focus on substance and serve as respectful adversary. How would that translate into actual coverage? 1. Be fair. Give Trump his due: He won. As his appointments and policies emerge, they should be examined in turn and in detail, looking at their component parts. Separate news...

    Blurb quoting white supremacist leader ‘was poor judgment and we very much regret it and apologize’ CNN apologized for a banner flashed onscreen during a segment on white supremacist groups which read, “Alt-right founder questions whether Jews are people.” The segment was aired Monday on “The Lead,” which was being guest-hosted by Jim Sciutto. On Tuesday, CNN said in a statement concerning the banner, known as a chyron: “It was poor judgment and we very much regret it and apologize.” The Monday segment concerned statements made over the weekend by Richard Spencer at an event of his white supremacist think...

    CNN and others, QUIT telling our leaders who to denounce or silence, etc. because we didn't vote for these people so YOU could tell them what to do and negate the results of the election. We voted to get something done about illegal immigration and their involvement and voting in our elections, which is something no other country would tolerate, not soft pedal it. We voted for a ban on muslim immigration and severe restrictions on what they can do while living here and the influence they can have (they hate us). We voted for fiscal responsibility. We voted for...

    Trump: he’s definitely not your grandfather’s president.He does his own YouTube videos rather than calling a press conference with “the dishonest press” and announces his first 100 day agenda - before he’s even inaugurated!And every item on his to–do list seems designed to further irritate the already depressed non-supportive media.Then he calls a meet the press soiree - just to yell at them for a change: The meeting was characterized by the Times as antagonistic, and one in which Trump “described the television networks as dishonest in their reporting and shortsighted in missing the signs of his upset victory.” -...

    A top aide to President-elect Donald Trump is dismissing questions about Trump's tweeting, asking why a network news anchor would care. "Why take it up? Why take up 'SNL'? No president does that. Why waste time? Why distract?" CNN's Chris Cuomo asked Kellyanne Conway Monday morning. "Why do you care?" Conway replied in the contentious interview. Trump over the weekend tweeted criticisms of "Saturday Night Live" and repeatedly called on the "Hamilton" cast to apologize to Mike Pence for comments targeted at the vice president-elect. "Who's to say he can't do that? Make a comment — spend five minutes sending...

    President-elect Donald Trump exploded at media bigs in an off-the-record Trump Tower powow on Monday, sources told The Post. “It was like a f—ing firing squad,” said one source. “Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed…. “The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added. A second source confirmed the encounter. “The meeting took place...
